How to attach your tags:

Things you'll need:​

✔️ White card stock for printing tags

✔️ Clothes hangers

✔️ Safety pins (no straight pins or tiny brass pins)

✔️ Zipties* (find them at Walmart, Target or DG)

✔️ Ziplocs* (various sizes)

✔️ Packing tape* (no masking tape)

✔️ Optional: Tagging gun like this one (Makes tagging clothes so fast and easy! If using a gun, be sure to place the barb inside a seam to avoid holes in the fabric.)

 

*Some supplies may be optional, depending on what items you're tagging.

Tag Printing Reminders:

  • All tags must be printed on white card stock.

  • Regular paper or colors other than white cannot be accepted.

Select a category:

Clothing

Shoes

Small Items

Toys, Games & Puzzles

Books & DVDs

Large Items (anything larger than a shopping tote)

How to tag Clothing:

  • Hangable clothing must be on hangers with hook opening facing left like a question mark(?).

  • Any hanger type is accepted, but we recommend adult-sized wire hangers for all sizes.

  • When facing the item, attach tag to the front-top-right using a safety pin or tagging gun. Tags placed anywhere other than the right side of clothing cannot be accepted.

  • If using a tagging gun, fasteners must be placed into a seam (like under the arm) to avoid holes in the fabric. Fasteners placed outside of a seam cannot be accepted.

  • For sets, pin together with bottoms behind tops so that bottoms are visible.

  • Remember! Clothing MUST be free of stains, holes, odors, and excessive wear or fading.

  • Stain removal: We recommend Grandma's Spot Remover, Tuff Stuff foam cleaner, or the OxiClean family of products. Always test for colorfastness on a small area first.

How to tag Shoes:

  • Fasten together with zip ties (our favorite method).

  • Hole punch tags and run zip tie through before fastening.

  • If using ziplocks for shoes, always tape tag to the outside and tape opening shut.

  • Cleaning: In many cases, shoes may be machine washed and air dried. Magic Erasers work wonders on on white soles. Armor-All shines up Crocs!

How to tag Small Items (socks, hair bows, etc):

  • Tag sets of multiple small items together!

  • Place in ziplocks and tape tag to the outside.

  • Secure ziplock opening with tape.

  • Stain removal: Many hair bows may be machine washed on cold and air dried. Never put hair bows in the dryer.

How to tag Toys, Games & Puzzles:

  • Make sure all parts are present and in good working order.

  • Don't forget working batteries in electronic items!

  • Place small loose items in ziplocks and place them inside or tape to outside.

  • Use Saran wrap to secure board puzzles!

  • Secure the opening of games with tape.

  • Attach tags with packing tape in a visible location.

  • Cleaning: Magic Erasers work wonders on dingy plastic items. Spot clean fabric toy parts with Tuff Stuff foam cleaner.

How to tag Books & DVDS:

  • SETS SELL BEST!

  • Secure sets in gallon or oversized ziplocs with titles listed in the tag description.

  • Attach tags with packing tape in a visible location.

  • Secure ziplock opening with tape.

How to tag Large Items (anyting larger than a shopping tote):

  • Place these tags in a ziplock and bring them with you to Drop Off.

  • You will be given a large item claim tag to attach your tags for these items.

Tagging FAQs

What supplies do I need to tag my items?

It depends on what sort of items you're tagging, but most consignors will need white card stock, clothes hangers, safety pins (or tagging gun), ziplocks and packing tape.
 

Am I required to use a specific type of hanger?

We do not require any specific hanger type, but adult wire hangers are our fav for consigning! They maximize space on our racks and work great for all clothing sizes.
 

Do I get my hangers back after the sale?

No, each hanger is sold with the item. Hangers are inexpensive and can be found at Walmart, Target, or local dollar stores. Sometimes department stores will even give them away for free! It's also a great idea to save up hangers from new clothing purchases for consigning.
 

My printer's down. What can I do?!

Consider having a friend print for you, or visit a local office supply store for super reasonable printing services.
